For over 20 years the Diamond Jack river boats have cruised the Detroit River to the delight of thousands of passengers who have become loyal fans. Many of our passengers take these boat rides on the upper and lower Detroit River every year, and some even several times a year. Life is different out on the river where you'll see Detroit and Windsor landmarks from a different point of view. Boats sail rain or shine every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Treat your senses to an unique experience along the Detroit River. Narrated Sightseeing Tours leave from Bishop Park in Wyandotte as well as from Rivard Plaza in Detroit. We sail Thursday through Sunday at 1 PM and 3:30 PM. Tickets are available online and at the dock 30 minutes prior to sailing.

This tour boat company offers two different tours from this dock. One goes up the river and the other goes down river past Bob Lo Island. The tour announcers are so knowledgeable about the area. Nice trips.

This is by far the best tour of Detroit. The announcers are well informed and comical and point out everything of interest on both the American and Canadian sides of the river. The views are stunning. After heading upstream towards Lake St. Clair, the boats circle Belle Isle and pass downtown, heading under the Ambassador Bridge before turning back. Plenty... More

We did this tour on a hot steamy day. It was just what was needed! It was relaxing with a wonderful breeze. The history of the buildings and sites along both the Canadian and United States shorelines was very interesting and informative. For the twenty dollars charged; fifteen; for senior citizens it was a bargain price.

This is a nice tour to take along the river. The guide described a lot of the history surrounding both sides of the river, United States and Canada.

This tour is definitely not worth the money. There is very little history. The majority of the tour takes you past industrial sites. I would consider it to be very boring

I recommend this tour to anyone. I was able to enjoy it through my son's 5th grade field trip. The weather was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They spoke about sites around Detroit and Windsor that I learned about for the first time. I can't wait to go again with my entire family.

We'd been wanting to do a river cruise for years, and the opportunity finally presented itself - on a beautiful late-summer day. We boarded in Wyandotte and cruised south to Boblo Island. There is not much to see on that route, and the young woman narrating the trip was difficult to understand (we were downstairs) and quite unenthusiastic about doing... More

Took this curse due to the one that we took in Detroit. Staff started with asking for tips. Very little information on the land marks along the river. After turn around only one bit of info was given, Hot day on the water without much to say about it.
